CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Telegraph
It’s a rarity to have an album in which every song could genuinely be a single, but they’ve managed it here.

Spill Magazine
Circa Waves achieve a euphoric alternative record at its best.
80
AllMusic

Never Going Under is the most direct and nervy Circa Waves have sounded since 2015's Young Chasers.

80
Dork
The quartet maintain pop sensibilities with a feverish sonic immediacy, but their progression as a band is, as ever, plain to see.
70
Clash
Though it may not be their most daring record to date, it’s certainly one where they’ve taken most risks, and their blend of indie-rock and electro-pop certainly pays off.

The guys from Liverpool found their sound and recorded an album of stadium hits, now they can aim for the heights of their legendary compatriots The Beatles.

Never Going Under is packed with catchy melodies and strong performances. Most every song feels well made for the radio, or I could say any blowing up on the internet. There's a lot of punchy and infectious lyrics on this that will have me coming back again and again.

Probably going under.

A solid album from the Liverpool based band, it is far from their worse but still not their best. A great collection of indie tunes nonetheless.

Best Songs: 'Do You Wanna Talk', 'Carry You Home'.
